Trees - an exhibition at Redwing Gallery, Penzance, Cornwall,UK October 11 - 23, 2019

This show is in aid of Penwith Environmental Network in Cornwall
which began in 1982 and is a nonpolitical charitable trust which promotes conservation and improvement of the natural environment.There are various working groups and activities to join.

Lee Stevenson has hung the pictures in this mixed show to make a balanced composition in the upstairs gallery. His own print-making is a very beautiful balance of pattern and colour but with basis in reality and observation.

There are strange pictures such as Suzi Stephens' drawing on a pinkish ground, maybe expressing a state of mind, 

Bruce Murray's puzzling small composition including words, 

 and Frankie Webb's strong dark tree trunk.  

Maureen Kennedy's tree is within a flowing landscape, 

Russell Hedges' picture is a symphony of greens 

and Jane Sand has a way of piling on the paint which injects a lively energy as if animated by a restless wind. 

A varied show with prices from £40 to £300.
